... is what counts right? :)
We rented a car for a day and went for a beautiful drive. Scary at times because it was so narrow and you would accross a bus.... I closed my eyes for that part! The food was delicious and the people super nice.
Had a great time!
This summer I went to the Canary Islands with my friends. We did a lot of things there; we went to the swimming pool, partying, to the dune beach, and to the aqua park party...
Also, one day we went to one beach where there were a lot of water sports and we practised the motorskying, parasailing and a los of things.
Finally we come back to Spain with hangovers and our bodies very pained becouse we fell many ...
... the week we attended a number of events including a “masked ball” which was great fun.
The atmosphere here is one of excitement and anticipation. We can’t wait to get started!
Our start is midday Tuesday and so we will probably be sending our next blog later on Tuesday or during Wednesday.
Please send us your comments via the blog as it is always great to messages coming in as we go along.

... are let off the hook until Tuesday due to the fact that Cats don't handle well at all when beating into the wind, so we wait until wind changes to the South!

There are three boats only out of 220. that are definately confirmed to leave today to brave the storm and 35-45 knot winds potentially up to 50 knots - one of which is the Challenger boat that I ...
The mood amongst the crew is one of excited anticipation, as we mentally ready ourselves for the sight of land, showers and RUM! We sailed throughout the night, keeping the boat as steady as possible so that each watch could get some sleep, while the watch crew enjoyed the beautiful clear starry sky and the sparkling phosphorescence the is bubbling around our wake.
Our helming has suddenly become extraordinarily precise under threat from ...

Historical Traveler Reviews El Greco Apartments Puerto Rico
This Hotel is easily the best one in Puerto Rico great staff, clean rooms fab views and a quiet location the only thing wrong is you have to check out at 12pm which when you have a flight at 2am the following morning is not so great but the reason is it isTHE hotel everyone wants to stay in
we got allocated on arrivel couldnt believe this hotel all i can say is brill the staff was brill maids too always cleaning towels changed every day bed linen every 2 days they even did your washing up would go again if you want some good food go to the cafe sol down by the harbour the owners tony & sam are brill sam is a very good cook and she will make you any thing evens if its not on the menu
Stayed there AOA and were delighted with location, cleanliness, staff, restaurant, everything was just perfect. We liked it so much we are booked again for May 2006. Although it is costing us more this time we don't care. l have been to Puerto Rico 6 times and these are the best apts yet.
We are just back from a week in Puerto Rico and i thought it was excellent. We booked the Suite, only by chance as it must have been a cancellation and it was fantastic.Our tranfer time was about 45 min and we didnt have any other stop off as we were on the bus with the guests from Marina Suites and we were first. On arrival they do ask for the €150 deposit, but we knew that anyway so we were prepared. They took our passports and kept them overnight. We asked ourselves for the safety deposit box we had to pay €14 euro and then €12 euro deposit so €26 in total. we got back the deposit on departure.. The suites are very big and well equipped. We had two rooms,one with a double bed and one with two single beds. Loads of wardrobe space, two showers and an nice kitchenette with living room space. It was spotlessly clean. We had a welcome bottle of water in the fridge when we arrived. The suite was no 3 and other guests we spoke to said that suite no 1 is noisy from the kitchen, which i can imagine as they get the kitchen and dining area ready early even though the restaurant isnt open till 7pm.
Just returned from a week with my daughter at the El Graco apartments and I have to say, that after reading all the reviews I could before I went, I was left feeling a little dissapointed. BUT...I have never stayed in self catering apartments before,and, the general opinion from other guests there was that this is a good place to stay as apartments go. Perhaps after years on the road in top hotels I was expecting too much.
Arrived at 4am sunday morning,tired after one of the longest transfers we have ever had.These apartments were booked late deal through a reputable travel company.First shock was you had to pay an extra 150 euros(approx 100)deposit before you were given the keys to your room there was no prior knowledge of this.The room was massive had microwave,grill hob,perculator,toaster, fridge...and a kettle.We had room 118 it is an end apartment on the first floor it has the largest balcony of them all with sun most the day looking out on the roof top garden there were two sunbeds on the balcony and table and chairs.The hotel has two pools a small one and another one a bit bigger with a pool bar.The room was kept really clean and the staff very friendly..you could put up a no disturb sign if you wanted a lie in.The apartments are in a great location just across the road from puerto rico beach..when they have re -done the bar and resturant and laundry room it will be a great place to stay.However our break was ruined because of the hotel building work going on,at 8.30 am almost everyday..drilling and cutting blocks(nightmare)so we had sadly little chance to enjoy a sunbathing session,or peaceful breakfast on our balcony.You are close to a handful of eating places.there is a lovely bar with a fantastic view(harbour lights)serving fosters beer overlooking the sea and harbour.Head right from the hotel dodge the guys sellling cameras go up the stairs its next to the chemist.also there is a very popular ? eating place called oscars pretty with candles on the tables...but wow the prices..forget it if you are saving your euros.If you are booked to stay at the el greco be warned about the temporary discomfort and it was not possible to keep the room on past 12 oclock mid-day..a long time to walk the resort..prior to a 2 am flight.
My friend and I booked our holiday 72 hours before we flew to Gran Canaria. We paid approx £160 for an allocation on arrival holiday - we didn't even know what area of Gran Canaria we would be placed at.
i stayed at the el greco apartments for a week over christmas with my partner and 6 year old daughter, the apartments were very clean well equipt and in a great location. the beach was 20 seconds away there were lots of bars and shops nearby and plenty of things for us to do. the staff spoke very good english and were very helpful, there were 2 pools in the hotel one which was heated. there were 2 pool tables to keep the children entertained and the pool snack bar served excellent food at very low prices. i was very pleased with my stay at the el greco and am looking forward to going back this year.
Fantastic self catering acccomodation. Quiet yet close everything you'll need for a great holiday. Perfect for families and couples alike. They do book up early so dont ponder over them too much-- Just Book them. We loved them and Im pretty sure you will too !!
